Focus on Tutoring Programs: Part II - Math

Tuesday, July 20, 2021, 2:00 - 3:30 PM

Join Maryland Philanthropy Network’s Education Funders Affinity Group for a two-part series on tutoring programs. The first discussion Focus on Tutoring Programs: Part I - Literacy will be held on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, 2:00 - 3:30 PM.

For our second discussion, our speakers Joshua Michael and Sara Krauss from the University of Maryland Baltimore County's Sherman Scholars Program and Maryellen Leneghan and Alan Safran from Saga Education will introduce us to their mathematics tutoring programs. Come learn about what we know about effective math tutoring practices, programmatic models for two leaders in mathematic tutoring, and ways philanthropy can help to expand tutoring supports in Baltimore. Specific questions we will explore during the session are the following:

  • What do we know about effective math tutoring practices? What are the most effective delivery methods? Where in the country is this being done well?  What are the results? 
  • What is the possibility for each organization to serve students who need mathematics support in Baltimore? What interest, ability, or plans currently exist for expanding tutoring supports in Baltimore? 
  • What are the potential needs of each tutoring initiative to expand math tutoring in Baltimore? How can the philanthropic community support this growth?

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
